About the programme

The Foundervine Immerse programme will create an immersive ecosystem of support with multiple touchpoints for working professionals and founders at various stages of their journey.

The programme has been inspired by the Black. British. In Business & Proud Report 2021, which shows that Black owned businesses face significant challenges in starting, growing and accessing the right support. The mission of this partnership between Foundervine and Lloyds Bank is to create an equitable landscape for Black entrepreneurs and other underrepresented founders to have the best opportunity to start, grow, adapt and thrive in their business pursuits.

Over the course of 2022, we are offering founders, or aspiring founders, the opportunity to participate in a range of initiatives and events covering themes such as: finance, marketing, digital skills, scaling a business and mental health. The blended programme of in-person and virtual events, as well as regular educational content, offers participants the chance to fully immerse in a journey which improves knowledge and skills, whilst feeling supported within a community of like minded entrepreneurs and industry experts.

What does the programme involve?

The Foundervine Immerse programme includes a series of spotlight events, community get-togethers, accelerators and an online educational video series. These initiatives are all led by subject matter experts to provide founders with the skills, tools, and resources to build and grow their business.

Bringing together a mix of founders, working professionals, mentors, speakers, & Lloyds Bank teams together at in-person connection building events.
